Meadowlands Reminder for Breeders Crown Undercard Series

This is a reminder that The Meadowlands will be carding a Breeders Crown undercard series for three year olds when standardbred racing returns in November.

There will be four separate mini-series for 3-year-olds of both sexes and gaits. The conditions for these series will be horses that have not earned $100,000 in 2014. Purses for the eliminations will be $20,000, with an estimated $50,000 final. The races will include a one-time $500 starting fee.  There are over 300 horses catalogued in the upcoming Standardbred Mixed Sale at Harrisburg that meet the conditions of these four events.

The 3-year-old colt and filly trotters will compete in their eliminations on Friday (Nov. 14) with the finals to be contested on Friday (Nov. 21).

The 3-year-old colt and filly pacers have eliminations on Friday (Nov. 21) and the finals on Saturday (Nov. 29), which is the night of the TVG Free For All Championships.
